Phil Goldberg 
Last updated: 23.04.22
Phil Goldberg is another obscure ragtime era composer for whom no biographical information currently exists. He is known for the rag Saskatoon (1906) and a song I Wonder Who (1920). Despite the fact that the front cover of the original sheet music of Saskatoon is used by the Canadian National Library as an icon for its sheet music collection, whether or not he was a Canadian is still to be determined. The name could of course also be a pseudonym
